    I got the profiling done on some more stainless blades that the holes need drilled and the flats cleaned up...once these are ready for heat treat I think that will make 19 that I will send out to peters which should keep me busy for a long tim.
    Then I have a large hunter Im working on that will sport Bocote scales and a hand rubbed finish.

    The devil's in the details. Working on dialing in the plunge lines, and straightening out the front of the ricasso.

    A little final hand sanding and a little polishing on this handle before I get started on the sheath.

    Beautiful! Do you dye each piece of leather to get that cool banding look?

    Hi Justin,

    I love the grain on that hunter. I bought some bocote for the wild grain and color and then floundered on the finish for a while. I finally found a method of finish that I liked. I bought some organic (lol...yes they use it for coating candies...) Carnuba wax flakes and two tiny crock-pots. I hung the wood in an empty crock-pot till it was warm/hot then I hung it in the other pot in melted Carnuba for an hour or so. then moved it back to the other pot on warm to drip off extra Carnuba. Then with a clean dry buffing wheel I buffed it to a nice sheen and it seems very hard. It was about $35 for this experiment. I still want to do some tests on the finish but I suspect it will hold up fine. I know you probably have a good method but thought I'd share this one. I will try this on other "greasy" woods when I have time....
    Thanks,
    Smallshop (AKA Ted Hauser)

    Thank you! I really like the way it's turning out so far.
    No, I don't dye the leather at all. The variations in color are just natural variations in the color of the leather and also where the epoxy soaked into the leather.
